Tucker Carlson reveals Donald Trump’s ‘unprecedented’ legacy and says Democrats will pick ‘senile’ Joe Biden for 2024 election English Headline


Fox News Primetime Host Tucker Carlson has claimed the Democratic establishment has “benefitted greatly” from a “senile” Joe Biden and is likely to push the President to run for re-election in 2024.

The 79-year-old President has continued to dismiss speculation on re-election as he stares down the November mid-terms which could see a Democratic Party wipe-out in Congress.

Current opinion polls have Joe Biden marginally up from his mid-year trough and recording a 42 per cent approval rating.

The President is even behind his predecessor Donald Trump at same stage of their terms leading many to speculate whether he will seek re-election.

In an exclusive interview with Sky News Australia host Peta Credlin, Carlson said despite the disastrous polls, the Democratic Party establishment would likely throw its support behind the incumbent come 2024.

Carlson said Mr Biden had “worked pretty well” for the Democrats and the party was “not going to run” his Vice President Kamala Harris.

“Joe Biden is senile and the down side is he’s not capable of organising your daughter’s birthday party much less running a government but the upside is he seems very non-threatening,” Carlson said.

“Voters are not afraid of Joe Biden and of course he’s merely a proxy for the people who are actually running the US government – the faceless, diabolical figures who are driving us into the abyss.

“So they’ve benefited greatly from having a senile president and the more I think about it, the more I imagine – why wouldn’t they run him again?”

The President recently addressed the issue on the US 60 Minutes program where Mr Biden said it was “much too early” to make a call.

Mr Biden said he would continue to do his job and delay the decision until a “timeframe that makes sense after this next election cycle here”.

“My intention as I said to begin with is that I would run again. But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen,” Mr Biden said in September.

As speculation continues to grow around re-election, the spectre of his predecessor, President Trump, continues to loom large in American politics.

The former president has played a significant role in the Republicans’ campaign to win back control of the House and the Senate in the upcoming mid-terms.

Mr Trump preached to Hispanic voters in Florida on Wednesday but he himself has not declared whether he will run for his party’s nomination in 2024.

Carlson said while he was unsure about the former president’s intentions for the 2024 election, Mr Trump had played a significant contribution in altering American politics which “no one in America ever mentions”.

“I would say his lasting contribution, and no one in America ever mentions this, is changing the fastest growing demographic in the US which is Hispanic voters,” Carlson said.

“He was famously ‘anti-Hispanic’, he wanted to build a wall to keep the Mexicans out for reasons that no one discusses or maybe understands, (but) Donald trump is extremely popular with Hispanic voters, they seem to agree with him.

“And because of Donald Trump, Hispanic voters who have traditionally voted Democrat are now voting, the majority of them, for Republicans.

“That’s a huge change, it’s an unprecedented change, it’s a change no one expected and it’s a change that’s very much going to hurt the Democratic Party.”
